Mixed Media Monday: Chalkboard Look Poem Pages

I’ve been working on some chalkboard style canvases for my cousins wedding:Love is Patient Wedding Canvas

Which is what inspired me to do a chalkboard style entry in my art journal this week.

Mixed Media Chalkboard Poem Pages

The poem I used is called Harlem by Langston Hughes. For this page I used black acrylic paint, opaque white paint markers, and a little bit of watercolors. The fine point paint marker is a Pen-Touch which is very fickle and hard to get working consistently, although I love the quality when it’s working. The thicker paint pen is a Sharpie oil based paint pen I got at Home Depot.

If you enjoy the video be sure to like it, and have a good Monday!

    I loved the Love is patient board. Can’t wait to see more. What do you put down on your multi-media page when you start? Is is a type of wax paper or something else? Your pages are really cool
